    These weren’t bad. I made a batch last night and topped them with vanilla and chocolate glaze. I made the majority of the batch as mini doughnuts and they were pretty dry. The larger ones I made (in a makeshift doughnut tray) were great. Do you have any suggestions about how to make the smaller ones moist? Maybe a different bake temp?

    Thanks for sharing this recipe! We totally don’t need a full batch of doughnuts in our house. 🙂

      Hi Allie.
      The minis were dry because of the temp and the time. I’d try reducing both. You need the higher temps for the donuts to brown in the pan, but if you’re glazing, that doesn’t really matter. Good luck
